BarTender® and GHS

GHS or Globally Harmonized System is the classification and labeling of chemicals. It is a system of hazard communication for chemical hazards that can be adopted by countries around the world. GHS was developed by a United Nations (UN) international team of hazard communication experts.


Our partners at  BarTender®, transform hazard information into GHS pictograms, labels, and material safety data sheets (MSDS) that drive GHS compliance. Many chemical industries rely on BarTender for complete, accurate, and automated GHS labeling, and by restructuring their labeling processes and eliminating redundancies in their data sources, they will most likely save time and cut costs while also achieving regulatory compliance.

Like other highly regulated industries, those in the chemical arena, are no stranger to ever-changing requirements, so having the ability to make changes rapidly, securely, and accurately becomes priority number one. BarTender allows them to edit label data, formatting, or design and provides those updates immediately. While changes are done rapidly and accurately, there is still control over the security settings so any part of a label template can be locked down and any changes are tracked. At any time, it is clear what changes were made, who made them, and when they were made.  BarTender also allows a company to implement complete revision control and audit trail capabilities. Highly customized security features are necessary when working within an industry that deals with hazardous chemicals.

When looking to gain labeling efficiency without sacrificing security, accuracy, and speed, Pragmatyxs can help implement a GHS-compliant solution like BarTender.
